Launch of L45F and L50F wheel loaders

Two new mid-sized wheel loaders are the latest additions to Volvo Construction Equipment’s F-Series line up. The Volvo L45F and L50F delivers peak performance for increased productivity – and profitability.

The latest additions to Volvo Construction Equipment’s ever expanding F-Series range of wheel loaders is the L45F and L50F machines. Fitting into the mid sized class of machines, both wheel loaders are made for performance, with features that include the patented Torque Parallel (TP) loader linkage, separate working hydraulic pumps for maximum power, 100% axle differential locks, the famed Volvo Care Cab and long service intervals. The initial roll out will start in December 2008 concentrating on European markets and the plan is to expand internationally throughout 2009.

The Torque Parallel linkage gives both the Volvo L45F and L50F smooth, parallel lift, high tilt-back torque and good lifting power – right through the lift range. A key element to any wheel loader is visibility, and the L45F and L50F’s linkage provides class-leading pallet visibility, along with a clear view of attachments. A wide rollback angle adds to Volvo’s already good reputation for retaining loose bucket material, while the parallel lift action makes it suited for material handling and pallet handling.
